If you could taste the seasons, fall would taste like a mixture of cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and ginger. You might be thinking all of those ingredients sound oddly familiar when mixed together. When you combine these flavorful spices into one mix you get a pumpkin pie that everyone loves to make this time of year. If you haven’t made a homemade pumpkin pie, this is the year to try it. Even if you are not the best at baking, we promise you this recipe couldn’t be simpler. Grab your spices and pie crust and get ready to make the most delicious pie yet!
What You’ll need
Pumpkin pie doesn’t call for many ingredients which makes it a very simple yet memorable recipe. You will need one can, or 15 ounces, of pumpkin to get started. Of course, you will need one can, or 14 ounces, Sweetened Condensed Milk to get the creamy rich flavor everyone loves in their pie. Also grab two large eggs, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, ½ teaspoon ground ginger, ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg, ½ teaspoon salt, and last but not least one nine-inch unbaked pie crust. That’s it for your ingredients. We told you it was simple!
Time To Bake
If you thought the ingredients couldn’t get simpler, check out how you make this pumpkin pie. To start, preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. In a medium bowl mix your canned pumpkin, milk, eggs, and all of your spices and whisk the mixture until it is as smooth as butter. Once your pie filling is smooth, pour it into the pie crust. Bake for 15 minutes on 425 degrees. After the 15 minutes is up, reduce the oven to 350 degrees and bake another 35 to 40 minutes. You can poke a knife into the pie, and it if comes out clean then that means it is ready to be taken out. Let the pie cool for a few minutes before eating.

What To Pair it with
If you love toppings on your pie or want something that goes well on the side, you can get creative. Whipped cream, baked apples, pecans, or anything you like can go well with a slice. Ice cream is also a must for on top. French vanilla, vanilla bean, cinnamon, and even pumpkin-flavored ice cream would go great with your fresh-baked pie.
